DULANY, Daniel, statesman, born in Maryland in July 1721 ; died in Baltimore, Maryland, 19 March 1797. He was a lawyer of Annapolis, Maryland, and served many years as commissioner general, secretary of state, attorney general, and councilor of Maryland, before the Revolution. Few details regarding his career have been preserved, but he ranked high in his profession, and was considered one of the most distinguished men of his time. Although a loyalist, in which character he engaged in a warm newspaper discussion with Charles Carroll, he was earnestly opposed to the stamp act, being credited with the following sentiment: "There may be a time when redress may be obtained. Till then 1 shall recommend a legal, orderly, and prudent resentment to be expressed in a zealous and vigorous industry. A garment of linsey-woolsey, when made the distinction of patriotism, is more honorable than the plumes and the diadem of an empeter without it. Let the manufacture of America be the symbol of dignity and the badge of virtue, and it will soon break the fetters of distress." Josiah Quincy, of Massachusetts, while on a journey to the southern states in 1773, speaks of having spent "three hours with the celebrated Daniel Delany." He was the author of "Considerations on the Propriety of imposing Taxes on the British Colonies," etc. (London, 1766).
